Peekabo, Oklahoma - Poem by Marilyn Lott

Oklahoma has an exciting history
For when land was given away
During the Land Run of 1889
Many folks were there to stay

Yes, it happened so very quickly
And it was all about the oil
Folks came from all around
For a piece of land on Peekabo soil

They came in all modes of transportation
Didn’t matter which one they used
Can you imagine the chaos there was?
But most every broken rule was excused

And you still can see the oil wells
As you are driving all around
Hammering away at a steady pace
In that treasured Oklahoma ground!
